Climb the low angle side of the Thimble (no pro - unless one is creative).


Downclimb from parking lot to the base of the Thimble's slabby downhill side. Rap down into parking lot.


none, anchors at top.

This is a clasic. Dont know if it is nerves or what but this felt 5.6 both times i have been on it (1995 and 2008). At any rate, with zero pro this is a serious undertaking. I would say be sturdy at 5.6 since it is a solo with a rope trailing to get off the top. once your on top, youll feel better.

Actually not a bad little face climb. Totally X rated though, you really wouldn't want to fall, there isn't any good pro. Presumably anyone bothering to attempt this will be pushing 12s though. The bolted anchor at the top gets you easily down and let's you tr the thimble, just make sure it's clear of cars!
